“I guarantee when elections are called; we will beat the PPP” -Norton tells Golden Grove

A Partnership for National Unity + Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC) held its second, in a series of rallies all across Guyana, at Golden Grove, Market Street, last night.

In full campaign mood, speaker after speaker nailed the undemocratic and corrupt practices of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) regime, while arguing that the APNU+AFC Coalition is the only Party capable of developing Guyana and bringing prosperity to all Guyanese. In his address to the more than three thousand persons in attendance, Opposition Leader Aubrey Norton repeated his call for a clean voters list and for the Chairwoman of GECOM Claudette Singh to go.

“My friends, I think we have a glorious opportunity in front of us. We have to take it. So I urge you to go into every village and let us prepare for elections because I believe they are not going to wait until 2025 because they will become so unpopular and won’t stand a chance. So the money they are giving out now really and truly they are preparing the base because they can’t win with a clean voters list,” Norton told the enthusiastic crowd.

The Opposition Leader called for vigilance while reminding supporters that the PPP cabal is the biggest riggers. “If they think they are so big and powerful, why don’t they want a clean voters list?” “With a clean voters’ list, I guarantee you that when the elections are called; we will beat the PPP,” -Norton told the residents of Golden Grove and surrounding communities to loud applause.

The Opposition Leader started his presentation last night by calling on the crowd to observe one minute of silence for the late Rasleigh Esmond Jackson who passed away last Thursday, September 1, 2022, at 93. Norton described Rasleigh Jackson as the man who crafted Guyana’s foreign policy to keep Venezuela out of Guyana.

Jackson served as a minister with responsibility for foreign affairs under the People’s National Congress (PNC) Administration from 1978 until 1990. He also served as Guyana’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN). He was awarded the Order of Roraima of Guyana in 1991.
